Default Street Vendors


Though numerous street peddlers line the streets of Diagon Alley, customers would be wise to be wary of them. Any number of items can be found hawked on the streets daily, many useless and some illegal. One might be able to buy a cheaper wand, running the risk of it exploding during use. Bottoms have been known to fall out of the defective cauldrons bought from one of the carts. Not all is bad, though. Discounted jewelry can be bought, though the gold or gems may not be pure. One some days, a hag comes through with a cart of wind-chimes, some proclaimed to warn of burglars. Often, knick-knacks and small décor can be found in various carts. Be warned, though – sometimes the items being sold have been stolen from others.

Beyond item hawkers, various stalls are set up selling street food. Try a Cauldron Bread (a bread bowl carved out with soup or chowder served inside), stop by and grab some skewers/kebabs to go, hit up the Confetti Popcorn (the fizzy popcorn is supposedly made with real Muggle soda and fizzes in your mouth; dill pickle flavored even crunches like a pickle; berry flavored popcorn actually has dried cranberries, which goes well with the raspberry, blackberry and strawberry flavored popcorn). If you’re looking for a quick snack, the streets have enough.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Incredible! Magic was so, so, so cool! Why did Noah, Evan, AND Maya all have to be naysayers and partypoopers? Sheesh. She supposed that they didn't appreciate the magic as much as she since they had lived in this world and pretended it had not existed in front of her (RUDE!). So she was just in awe of everything around her. Aaaand she was so stubborn that she wasn't planning on asking anyone for help. Nope! Lisa Nam was going to do the things herself!!

Eyes as wide as saucers, tiny Lisa just stared at everything in this part of the alley. There were so many vendor stands filled with cauldrons, wind chimes, food (some weird fizzy popcorn and bread soup bowls that reminded her of the local cafe near her home), and JEWELLERY. The jewellery was shiny and beautiful and pretty (like Lisa, of course) and thus bright, sparkly things had to stick together, right?

She took a few steps forward towards the vendor's stand and peered at the jewellery, inspecting the quality. The eleven year old didn't have much to compare it to; however, she knew it looked nothing like her mother's jewellery that she'd have to fight her siblings to inherit one day. Hmph. She wondered if these were fakes....

Her eyes widened even more and her lips broke into a devilishly cunning GRIN. Maybe she ought to set up her own stand here and pass of extravagant fake knick knacks for a pretty penny too? Could she make this a business and start a side hustle at school? The four foot two girl tapped her foot and scratched her chin as she imagined the small business Empire that she could build.

Excellent....

Little did she know that she was standing in the middle of the street. The future entrepreneur was caught up in her day dream of fanciful realities waiting for them to come to fruition.

It was lucky for Lisa that V had met the girl a few weeks prior because if not, she might have either loudly and RUDELY told the girl off for standing in the middle of the FALIPPPPPPPING street or just ran into her.

But V was nice to people she liked. So she didn't do either of those things. Instead she stopped right in front of Lisa and pulled her to the side. "ARE you THICK? Don't just STAND THERE! People will run you over" she exclaimed in the most dramatic of tones. "Do you remember me? V?" Victoria Gellar, thank you. But V was fine. "And you are Lisa Nam." She remembered vividly. If only she could remember things for school when she studied half as well...her grades might be better.

"Were you planning on getting something from this stand?" she asked with a wave her hand in its direction.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Daniel had already been present at one of the food stalls and was currently paying for skewer he had ordered. He blew on it gently before taking a bite while he walked in the direction of the jewelry stand and briefly looked at a young girl next to him who seemed to be around his own age and who was also inspecting some of the jewelry.

He looked at a ring in one of the boxes and scoffed. Did people actually fall for this scam? Adults deserved to lose their money if they did buy these fake jewelry at full price. A loud voice took him out of his thoughts and he looked around to see that the girl from earlier had company. He stepped aside from the stall so that the two girls had room but he did not leave yet. "You'll be losing money if you buy any of this junk" he finally spoke before taking another bite from the skewer.

Huh. Maybe the goods weren’t so so bad? Fortunately she had noticed that there was another young boy around her age as she perused. She didn’t pay too much attention to him, thinking that it would be best to let him go about his own business. Besides, she was too busy figuring out the big picture here.

Maybe she could sell bracelets like this at Hogwarts? Have a little side hustle hmmm? Then she could buy more cookies and Star Wars lightsabers? She was about to reach out to grab a bracelet to inspect it further but she was stopped midway by a hand.

YES. Suddenly the tiny Nam was oh SO RUDELY! YANKED - well.. more so dramatically pulled to safety away from being in the middle of the street so traffic could pass you without causing any accidents. She was about to confront the individual when she processed the voice to find a familiar looking person. Ah. It was V. Well this was a coinidink. Last time, she had saved her had been in Madam Malkins and here they were again. The eleven year old slowly quirked an eyebrow as she found the other girl asking her if she remembered her. She nodded. “Uh thanks.... I didn’t realize that. And I remember you, V! You saved me at the..” She waved her hand around, searching for the word, before she snapped her fingers. “Robe shop! Madam Malkins. Thanks again!

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh....

At V’s question, Lisa diverted her gaze back to the stand. Well... she HAD considered it at one stage but did V really think the items were worth it. “I had... but.....” she began before the boy (Daniel) that she had seen earlier literally dropped into the middle of their conversation. She quirked her eyebrow as she took in the sight of him just munching on the skewer and offering advice. Folding her arms, she eyed him, unsure what to make of him but when he said what she said - she was impressed.

Y’know.... I was thinking the same thing... It looks too ‘perfect’ to be real... not like my Eomma’s jewelry.” She knew her Eomma had some nice jewelry that she had only gotten to wear ONCE when her and Maya had snuck in. Noah had thwarted them so they hadn’t been in too too much trouble but he had ruined their fun. Older brothers... hmph. “I was also wondering if this could work at Hogwarts as a side gig... Do you think it could work? I think its much more interesting than a bake sale...” she mused, looking to get a reaction out of both V and skewer boy.

"And WHO are you?" she asked immediately at the boy's voice, his TONE rubbing her the wrong way. Who was he to call all this junk?! V raised an eyebrow at him, crossing her arms in front of her chest. "Not ALL of it is junk, you know." She had stop herself from saying YOU'RE JUNK!!!!!!

"SOME of them sell food. Good food, too." She pointed at the one selling popcorn. The cauldron bowl things were good, too.

And then Lisa was taking off on an idea that V thought was very dumb. Side gig? "Why do you need a side gig? Just get money from your parents," she said as she flipped her hair over her shoulder. "I want popcorn. I'll buy you some if you want, Lisa," she said as she side-stepped toward the stand selling some, and glancing casually at the boy as she did NOT offer to buy him any.

The skewer that he was eating was not as bad as he thought it would be. Of course, the food that the chef at home made was a hundred times better but for a street food it was reasonably okay and he thought about buying a second one if he was still hungry.

”I’m Batman” he said, rolling his eyes as the RUDE girl raised her eyebrows and crossed her arms. He nonchalantly took another bite from the food, unbothered by her rude manners.

Listening to the girl (Lisa) talk about starting her own side gig at Hogwarts, Daniel had to agree with …the RUDE girl on this. If she wanted the money why not just ask her parents? It was that simple.

But because he had already decided that he did not like the other girl right now, Daniel turned his attention to the girl who wanted to have a side gig at school . ”Don’t listen to her. If you want to have a side gig just do it” Again, he had agreed with the other girl that asking for money was far easier but he did not like agreeing with her. "It should be fun, right?"

Not even caring that the RUDE girl had not offered to buy him popcorn, Daniel ate the last piece of the skewer and threw the stick in the garbage bin next to the stall. He wanted to have another skewer but instead he walked over to the popcorn stall as well and ordered a bag of popcorn BEFORE she could. HA!

If Lisa could, she would have melted right into this vendor’s stand and watch the interaction between V and “Batman”. Okay ngl the Batman comment got a little smirk from her. She decided not to comment on the food’s quality cause she didn’t know better and it was more interesting just watching them interact. Her eyes flicked back and forth between the two of them.

Lisa was OFFENDED at the comment around needing money. Her eyes widened a little bit and she huffed. She glanced at the jewelry and then took a deep breath to calmly explain her thought process. She didn’t want to get upset with V after all the help she had provided her. V was her magical guide through this strange foreign land of Diagon Alley. “It’s not about the money...” She stopped herself when Batman-Skewer Boy spoke up again, encouraging her to do it, surprisingly. Huh? She had NOT expected that. “I don’t want the side gig for the money, I just want to see how many people are stupid enough to fall for it. It’d be entertaining, ” she shrugged. “Besides like both of you have said I could get money from my parents IF I needed it.” And that was that.

Well that wasn’t nice of V not to offer Daniel some popcorn too because he had interrupted their conversation. But THEN he was rude by interrupting their conversation. Sheesh. She couldn’t figure out who was the rudest out of the two of them. Then V was like WHO ARE YOU - which was fine because it WAS a genuine question after all.....Well... Lisa wouldn’t say no to free food. “You get the popcorn, I get the drinks?” she offered before turning to where Daniel had stood. Huh? Where? She then spotted him over by the popcorn stand IN LINE already. OOf. That was just ... petty too? ... And Lisa was not gonna participate. She would much rather be the scorekeeper. It was too early to make enemies. “If we don’t want popcorn, we could go get skewers? Those smelled amazing...

The boy's remark wasn't funny. Was it supposed to be? Victoria didn't laugh. "You're not a man or a bat. So," she shrugged and rolled her eyes, glancing back at Lisa and for ALL intents and purposes decided to IGNORE the guy. He was the worst, V decided.

And WHO WAS HE to say not to listen to her?! "Lisa, do you know this guy?!" she asked, pointing in his direction as they followed him in line. AND she was glaring at him for CUTTTTTTING them in line, and Victoria realized she disliked him immensely. "That sounds WONDERFUL to me, Lisa, thank you. I'll get whatever popcorn you want. And shouldn't YOU not be in line since you called of this JUNK?" she asked the RUDE BOY with her hands on her hips. "You. Are. ANNOYING. I hope you know that," she scoffed and gave another roll of her eyes. Her strawberry-blonde hair was plaited down her back in a french-style, and she could feel it swinging back and forth behind her with her attitude. It helped with the attitude, it did, its swaying.

HMPH.

V then wondered if all boys would be like this. GASPPPPP. WAIT. Did he go to HOGWARTS? Would she have to deal with him at SCKEWWWLLLL?

For the first time this summer, Quinn was comfortable.

It's funny how at this time last year, Quinn was more scared of this place than home. Now it was just about the opposite.

Auntie Caroline was dead. She had come to Hogwarts to help during the battle with the Alliance, and she... hadn't made it. Quinn felt bad for not feeling much; he hadn't gotten to know her very well in the year he had known of her existence, but she seemed nice the couple of times they met. His mother, though... she wasn't taking it very well. She was... a bit scary, honestly. Scarier than usual.

Which is why, when asked what he wanted to do for his birthday, he said he wanted to come here. It was an opportunity for him to get out of the house for a bit. He had weirdly been missing the magic he was so nervous about last year—truthfully, after the term he had, he should be terrified of it. But... he would be more terrified to turn his back on magic than to face it. If a group like the Alliance were to pop up again, and he still wasn't able to stand up for himself... that's what terrifies him. That's what lights the fire in his stomach.

The downside of coming to Diagon Alley was... the prospect of seeing his friends. He wanted absolutely nothing more in the entire world. He missed them so severely that his heart ached. However, with his mom here, he wasn't super big on a sappy reunion. Maybe if he saw Eden or Dahlia or Ash it wouldn't be so bad, but if he saw Cathal or Tadhg or Atlas... he shuddered at the thought.

Luckily, at this moment, a reunion of sorts could go over relatively smoothly. Mrs. Kinglsey was having a look through Madam Primpernelle's and let Quinn have a look around the street vendors. How familiar. Quinn looked around at the different carts and his eyes landed on the Confetti Popcorn. Longing overtook Quinn's heart. He was happy that Atlas had his dad back—his real dad—and knew he was probably having a great summer. Quinn wished he could be a part of it... but it wasn't in the cards right now. He wondered what Atlas was doing at this moment. Was Atlas thinking of him on his birthday?

It was that Daniel had been looking in side-gig girl’s direction and had therefore seen her smirk at his Batman comment. Seemed like she had understood the joke unlike the other RUDE girl. His gaze went to her and he found it funny that she was struggling to understand. Instead of explaining the joke , Daniel decided to stay quiet cause whatever.

He would not have cut in line if the RUDE girl had not been obnoxious as even he thought that he was being petty too but her tone and …EVERYTHING about her was annoying to him. As a man before him was making his order for popcorn, Daniel turned back around so that he was facing the RUDE girl who had decided to get the popcorn and crossed his arms. ”I never said that” he said. ”If you used your brains you’d know i had been talking about the jewelry over there” he nodded in the direction of the stall that Lisa had been looking at earlier. ”But it must be difficult to use something you don’t have” he grinned and was about to turn back around when she called him annoying. ‘Takes ones to know one’ he thought before he took a step closer in her direction until he stood right in front of her. Personal space? No idea what that was. “You’re wrong. I’m not annoying” he leaned closer till his face was next to her ear like an informant telling information to an agency and whispered



“I’m Batman”

He wondered what Atlas was doing at this moment. Was Atlas thinking of him on his birthday?
Atlas Leonel Flamsteed had been having a pretty okay summer. On the good days...it was an okay summer.

Having dad back had not been everything he had been fantasizing it would be. The reunion at Hogwarts had been full of tears: his own, Aries', Auntie June's, Auntie Jade's, and dad's. It was also one of the first times, if not THE first time, that he could recall dad initiating a group hug...which subsequently meant that the man had not recoiled from it. Atlas had regrets now about staying at Hogwarts in the immediate aftermath to finish out the term. Everything at home felt...too normal. Almost as though "dad" had not been an imposter for the past however many years and the flow of things too fluid. Dad hadn't missed a beat, though perhaps his movements were more robotic ... like he was a rusty gear being moved for the first time in a long while and required a bit of oil, and had gone back to work at the Ministry right around the time he, Aries, and Andromeda had returned from school. The normalcy of life made Atlas feel...even more abnormal. His outbursts were a testament to this as well, though today he was feeling too sad to put the energy into one.

Quinn...had been ignoring him all summer and Atlas had spent more than a few sleepless nights wondering what he had done to deserve that. At first the now second year Gryffindor had chalked it up to needing space, something he had needed too during the first week of the break, but as it stretched on...

Was it because of how he hadn't used his voice to outwardly stand up for Quinn and everyone in the Room? Everyone SAW what happened when you did that, and Atlas still found that lot lucky they had just been prisoners and not Avada Kedavra'd right there on the spot for the way they had spoken to Rosier...some literally all term. He wasn't brave, an obvious flaw to the Sorting system Atlas had realized entirely too well at the start-of-term feast. And there was no way the 12-year-old could ever express how much the guilt tore him up inside. Maybe...maybe Quinn thought him a bad person? That was another spiral that had kept him up the other night. Was he a bad person?

...maybe he was...

Hands in his pockets, his purpose in Diagon Alley today being entirely out of necessity, the blonde kicked at a random pebble in the street and did not see it roll to a stop with a gentle thunk against the foot of the very person on his mind in this moment - it was, after all, his best friend's birthday today and his gift was neatly wrapped back at home.

...if Quinn even considered him to be that anymore.

Having dad back had not been everything he had been fantasizing it would be. The reunion at Hogwarts had been full of tears: his own, Aries', Auntie June's, Auntie Jade's, and dad's. It was also one of the first times, if not THE first time, that he could recall dad initiating a group hug...which subsequently meant that the man had not recoiled from it. Atlas had regrets now about staying at Hogwarts in the immediate aftermath to finish out the term. Everything at home felt...too normal. Almost as though "dad" had not been an imposter for the past however many years and the flow of things too fluid. Dad hadn't missed a beat, though perhaps his movements were more robotic ... like he was a rusty gear being moved for the first time in a long while and required a bit of oil, and had gone back to work at the Ministry right around the time he, Aries, and Andromeda had returned from school. The normalcy of life made Atlas feel...even more abnormal. His outbursts were a testament to this as well, though today he was feeling too sad to put the energy into one.

Quinn...had been ignoring him all summer and Atlas had spent more than a few sleepless nights wondering what he had done to deserve that. At first the now second year Gryffindor had chalked it up to needing space, something he had needed too during the first week of the break, but as it stretched on...

Was it because of how he hadn't used his voice to outwardly stand up for Quinn and everyone in the Room? Everyone SAW what happened when you did that, and Atlas still found that lot lucky they had just been prisoners and not Avada Kedavra'd right there on the spot for the way they had spoken to Rosier...some literally all term. He wasn't brave, an obvious flaw to the Sorting system Atlas had realized entirely too well at the start-of-term feast. And there was no way the 12-year-old could ever express how much the guilt tore him up inside. Maybe...maybe Quinn thought him a bad person? That was another spiral that had kept him up the other night. Was he a bad person?

...maybe he was...

Hands in his pockets, his purpose in Diagon Alley today being entirely out of necessity, the blonde kicked at a random pebble in the street and did not see it roll to a stop with a gentle thunk against the foot of the very person on his mind in this moment - it was, after all, his best friend's birthday today and his gift was neatly wrapped back at home.

...if Quinn even considered him to be that anymore.
Thunk.

A pebble had hit Quinn's foot, dragging him from his thoughts.

He looked down at the pebble.

He looked up to where it came from.

Well... this was a predicament. A mixture of thoughts and emotions ran through Quinn's head in the span of a split second. First up: isn't it weird how Atlas popped up as soon as Quinn started thinking about him? That seemed like some sort of weird fate. Or luck.

Next was elation at the prospect of seeing his friend again. All of Quinn's features brightened. It was fate, wasn't it? They were meant to see each other here. Quinn gasped a bit, readying to call his name, but the shout died before it reached his lips.

Now he was afraid. He had forgotten for a split second the full situation of his presence here. If him and Atlas were talking when Mom came back... but what was Quinn even supposed to tell Atlas? He couldn't very well explain away why he couldn't stay without telling him about... that. And that was off the table. He couldn't risk losing Atlas... like that...

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid at all costs. Don't even let him know you saw him, Quinn.

Quinn quickly ducked behind the Confetti Popcorn, out of view of Atlas, hoping he wasn't noticed.

The last thought that Quinn had: why did Atlas look so sad? He... had everything he wanted... right?

Say his name three times and he will appear. Like Beetlejuice. Or Rumpelstiltskin. Or, well, there was a whole group of horror genre characters that that apparently worked with. Not that Atlas had ever given himself nightmares over snooping any of these to try and prove a point (the point being that he was brave...and we have already been over how very much brave he was not).

More a mind of coincidence, Altas' bright blue eyes shifted to follow the trail of the pebble to the shoe it collided with and up, up, up...to Quinn's face. He felt his own heart squeeze and do somersaults at the same time which, for someone who was not all that athletic, made him feel winded instantly. Sort of like he had been punched in the chest. Which, well, it took him a couple of seconds to realize that his chest WAS being hit...but by his own balled up fist because he had swallowed some air while simultaneously attempting to greet Quinn excitedly on reflex. Unfortunately the air catching in his throat like phlegm with a really bad cold forced a pause while he attempted to figuratively resuscitate himself that granted the Gryffindor enough space to fully take in the look on Quinn's face...which did not read as though he were happy to see him.

At all.

And then his little lion heart broke just like it had every day this summer when the owls had arrived with the post and there was no return correspondence from Quinn.

It was obvious that the Ravenclaw was hiding from him, even if the hiding space was anything but inconspicuous. Especially given the particular vendor he had ducked behind and their history together. But...Atlas supposed the polite thing to do would be to just pretend not to see Quinn. That was...what he wanted to happen, right?

Patting his pockets, the blonde decided to approach this another way and approached the vendor while fishing out some money from his pockets, some change he had left over from purchasing his new school books, and spoke directly to the vendor. "Two...please," he said weakly while counting the coins and pushing them around in his palm. "A....a butterbeer and...whichever flavor has the least amount of fizz. My...my best friend has a sensitive tongueand the fizz is overwhelming sometimes. BUT...not the dill pickle...please..." All information the vendor did not need to know, but was Atlas reaaaaaaaaally talking to the vendor in the first place. "It's his birthday today...so ... all I want to do is do something nice for him...with him."

Handing over the coins, Atlas took the two boxes of confetti popcorn and then moved away from the vendor. Not THAT far away but...far enough.

Quinn stared down at his feet as he heard Atlas speak to the vendor.

Oh no.

Oh no no no no nonononono NO!


Atlas saw him.

All that Quinn wanted was to avoid Atlas until the new term started, and he could just chalk it up to his parents not giving him any mail, but... now Atlas saw him... hiding... there was no avoiding it.

If Quinn talked to Atlas, he would have to explain why he was avoiding him and then... Atlas would hate him. Or, even worse, Mom would come back and see them talking and...

But if he ignored Atlas then... Atlas wouldn't think he wanted to be friends anymore, wouldn't he?

Quinn's eyes teared up as he tried to think of something else he could do—some other way where everything would be okay. Where he and Atlas could be friends and Quinn wouldn't have to worry about Atlas thinking he was a freak or about what his parents thought and they could just be happy together.

Quinn wished he could just be normal. Just for one day.

But there was no way for this to work anymore, was there?

Quinn knew what he had to do. He did his best to compose himself, and he stepped out from behind the stand. He somberly walked over to Atlas, then glumly took the popcorn Atlas bought for him. He looked down into it, not able to make eye contact with Atlas.

"I... I..." Quinn's voice trembled, "...I'm sorry.... I don't think... we... can be friends..... anymore..." Quinn's voice gave out and heart shattered as the last words left his mouth. But... what other choice does he have?

Atlas wasn't sure if Quinn would come out...and then that had him feeling terrible because it wasn't as though the gesture of buying popcorn and saying all these things was purely innocent. He knew he was playing to Quinn's emotions as well, which maybe WAS innocent since he meant it all in good faith but then...well...let's just say Atlas had been thinking about emotional manipulation a lot these days. Though with Myrna it had mostly been discussions around fear. But this too...was a kind of fear, wasn't it? A fear that Quinn didn't want him anymore. That Quinn hated him. That if Atlas blinked Quinn would be gone. Poof into black smoke or entangled in horrifying green lightning.

Which meant then that his confetti popcorn tactic too was rooted in fear, right?

He dreaded his next session with Myrna already.

His heart elated when Quinn came out from his pathetic hiding place and joined him and it actually felt like summer in his heart for a moment. Lips curling into a smile, Atlas' mouth opened to speak. "I've really been mis----" But since he had begun speaking just as Quinn had, it took a few moments for the other blue eyed boy's words to reach the Gryffindor's ears and they fell so sharply, so harshly, that they cut his words right off. Probably could have cut his tongue clear out of his mouth too if given the opportunity. "...w-w-w-w-w-w-what?!" He was crushed, true spaghettification happening and the void in his chest pooling so deeply that that summer light that had just filled his heart was drawn in and could not escape. A black hole, if you will. "...w-w-w-w-why? What...what did...what did I..." But then Atlas found himself maybe not wanting to know what he had done. There were some pursuits of knowledge not worth investigating. But his mouth wasn't entirely listening to his brain and kept moving, sound dripping out and forming words. "...why...do you..think that...?"

He was holding out on that word THINK. Think was circumstantial. It was noncommittal. It was not a fact yet.

"...why...do you..think that...?"

He was holding out on that word THINK. Think was circumstantial. It was noncommittal. It was not a fact yet.
If Quinn's heart was already shattered, Atlas's response eviscerated what was left into minute dust. He had so much he wanted to say. You didn't do anything wrong. This isn't your fault. You did everything so right, you couldn't have possibly been a better friend. You're the best person I know. I wish I could be around you forever and ever. The tears came back to Quinn's eyes. "Atlas—"

"Quinn?"

Quinn froze. His mouth immediately shut and all the color drained from his face. He wiped his eyes quickly, turning around to try and put some distance between himself and Atlas before—

"Who is this?"

Catherine Kingsley eyed the boy who was not her son warily, but she kept a tight smile painted on to portray some sort of motherly curiosity. There was none. A blonde bob cut sharply along her jawline framed her lithe, pointy face. No amount of niceties could cut through the icy chill that emanated off of her.


Quinn looked down at the ground, not daring to look behind him at Atlas. "Uh, n-no one..." Wait, that might not be the most delicate way... "I-I mean, someone from school, but I, um, I don't know him that well, and I, um, I-I saw him and, uh, w-we were just catching up about s-summer stuff since w-we hadn't seen each other a-and—" Quinn kept stumbling over his words, trying to find some sort of explanation that would appease his mother. He didn't think it was working

His name...was not exactly the sort of answer he had been looking for here. Though it was also in this moment that Atlas realized just how long it had been since Quinn had last said his name. This was...a far cry from the tackle embrace they had shared in the spare office. It was all such a departure from the Quinn he knew that it had Atlas' mind reeling in all sorts of terrible directions. Namely in that...this person here was not Quinn but some impostor. Which was perhaps more of a defensive kind of reaction than genuinely believing that someone had gone out of their way to polyjuice into he Ravenclaw just to torture Atlas.

But...the person he knew wouldn't be saying these sorts of things...unprompted...without reason...not his Quinn...

Whatever answers he may be getting slipped right through his fingers like black smoke. The woman's appearance sent an icy chill up and down the gangly blonde and for a fleeting moment he wondered if it were possible for a person to be part dementor. But then his brain attempted to get into the logistics of how that would even be possible and it essentially shut down at the notion. Her chin looked like it could stab a hole right through a person though.

Atlas opened his mouth again to speak and introduce himself, but Quinn beat him to it in the worst way. No one. Which meant that Quinn didn't even talk about him at home and he ... might even be embarrassed in being friends with him?? Was this because he had peed his trousers twice the one time in front of Rosier? The thought that Quinn may be protecting him from something was there, fleeting and fragile, but Atlas' emotional instability and chaotic heart from wading through the traumas that were his first year at Hogwarts were not the most compassionate in looking for the glass to be half full.

Deflated and depleted, it took much effort to not give in to the sting that had claimed his eyes. Which was also why he was averting his gaze now. "Yeah...just classmates," he reiterated. "Haven't seen or spoken since the train ride back." Which was not a lie, though it came out a bit more spiteful than factual.

Oof the Batman comment didn’t sit well with V. Lisa had enjoyed it but that’s cause she knew who Batman was. She had grown up watching her older brothers watch cartoons and play Batman games. She just observed- couldn’t ever figure out the right buttons to press when and it just turned into hopelessly desperate button smashing. She figured that her acquaintance - almost friend (Lisa wasn’t quite sure but all she knew for sure was that she didn’t want to be on V’s bad side) didn’t understand. Buuut the match was on and Lisa was just going to remain quiet. No point in jumping in the middle of it. Lisa looked back and forth between Daniel and V like a spectator trying to keep up with a professional tennis match. Comment one served with a little slice from Daniel meets an overpowered topspin return.

Maydaaaaay question had just been asked to her. The tennis ball came towards her in her commentator stand. Uh? Did she look like she knew him? “No? But I think he’s funny.” Batman-Skewer Boy got jokes and Lisa liked that. “What makes you think that I know him?

She then followed V’s glare back to Daniel who was now in front of them. V restarted the match with a killer serve and the rally began. It was entertaining absolutely but she wondered if they were going to get kicked out of line and then no one would get the popcorn. It was also escalating and she knew that it was probably time to intervene but before she knew it Daniel - uh Bat Skewer Man Boy - got very very close to V so much so that even Lisa leaned a way slightly. Wait. Did he just whisper... She looked away, covering her mouth to hide a giggle, but her shoulders gave it away and she just coughed. V wasn’t dumb - a little annoying and snobby at times but not dumb. They were both out of line and being rude.

Lisa didn’t know what to do so she reached over and tapped Daniel’s arm lightly. “Excuse me.... Mr. Wayne... I think it may be your turn to order...” she said, pointing behind Daniel a little earlier than the guy was ready but she hoped that they would move on. “Come on V, let’s go get some skewers...” They had already caused a scene... more than she had wanted too.... This was messy and Lisa didn’t do messy.

Honestly, this was just stomping all over the dusty remnants of his heart, at this point. Atlas's answer may as well have kicked him in the back, and Quinn shut right up. Hearing the edge in Atlas's voice... Quinn knew that that was hate. The hate he wished he could avoid, but... at least Atlas didn't think him a freak.

"I see. Well, thank you, Atlas."

...huh?

Quinn stiffened and paled even further, if that was possible. He looked up at his mother.

Catherine's smile grew as if someone were tightening the screws at the back of her jaw. She was looking down at Atlas with an unreadable expression in her eyes.

"For buying your best friend some popcorn for his birthday. But, we really must be going now."

Catherine turned on her heel, her hand snaking down to Quinn's upper arm and grasping it firmly.


She heard. She heard everything.

"I must say, I didn't know Quinn had a sensitive tongue. I can adjust his diet accordingly."

She started walking, pulling Quinn along with her.


This was the worst possible outcome of the day. Quinn stumbled over his feet as he tried to keep up with his mother. He dared one last look back at Atlas, nothing but fear in his eyes.

"Look forward." Someone tightened the screws in her hand. Quinn's arm was squeezed tighter.

Quinn did as he was instructed. He started picking up his feet more, consciously looking down at them. Left. Right. Left. Right. Left. Right.

When they were out of earshot, Catherine thought she might as well give him a chance to speak. It wouldn't change the outcome.

"You know I can tell when you're lying. I didn't think you were stupid enough to try."

When her son said nothing, she prompted him again.

"What kind of friend is he, Quinn?"

She already knew the answer.

Something snapped inside Atlas during the following exchange. Actually, something snapped the moment the woman revealed that she knew who he was and that she had overheard the entire exchange to boot. Not just that, but she had these preconceived notions that were written all over her sharp and disgusted face. Notions that Atlas could not piece together himself, but it was abundantly clear that she did not like the thought of Quinn speaking to him. And then it clicked...this woman was the unspoken reason as to why Quinn felt like they could not be friends anymore. But why? And what kind of controlling monster was she to strike that much fear into Quinn with only a look (not unlike Rosier) AND play mind games with him too. You couldn't test someone who didn't know they were being evaluated! That was setting the other person up for failure and pushing your own agenda!

His hands squeezed the popcorn box in his hands, shooting butterbeer popcorn up in an an explosion of kernels and popped bits. There was still a little left in the bottom of it, but it was the last thing on Atlas' mind as he watched the woman drag Quinn away.

And those eyes...Quinn's eyes...

Nostrils flaring, Atlas was on the move and crumbling up the popcorn box into a lopsided ball. He was sure Aries would call his actions brave, but Atlas would later reflect and call it reckless abandonment in the presence of desperation and a horribly ugly part of himself to slip into. It was a gesture he had witnessed at Hogwarts, just with a shoe, and it was a jarring moment of defiance that had stood out above all else. Winding up, Atlas THREW the lumpy ball at the back of the woman's head while still propelling himself forward towards his STILL best friend.

He hadn't been able to stand up for or save Quinn at Hogwarts...but today would be different!
...maybe?

Reaching out, Atlas attempted to grab on to Quinn's OTHER hand and tug him free while his mom was distracted. They could make a run for it after. Everything would be fine! "Come on," he hissed between clenched teeth. "We'll make a run for it!"

The little ball of the popcorn container hit the back of Catherine's head with a dull thunk. The popcorn and kernels left in the bottom of the container flew out on impact, scattering into her hair and down her back. Catherine flinched as this happened, reaching her free hand to the back of her head to feel the sticky popcorn stuck there.

"Ugh!"

She whipped around to where the projectile had come from while trying to get some of the popcorn out of her hair, but she didn't see Atlas for a moment.


When Quinn heard the container hit his mother, he let out the tiniest squeak. Atlas was in for it now. But then Atlas was next to him, and he barely processed what Atlas said before he ripped his arm out of his mother's semi-distracted grip. He wanted to go. Atlas was who he wanted to go with. He wanted to be around Atlas forever and ever.

And then they were running. And his hand was in Atlas's. And it felt right.

A split second too late Catherine noticed Atlas was beside her. Before she could tighten her hold on her son he had ripped it away, causing her to stumble.

"QUINN! GET BACK HERE THIS INSTANT!" she shrieked as she regained her composure. But they had gotten lost in the crowd.

"QUINN!"


Quinn could hear his mother's shrill cries as they made their way through the crowd. It reminded him of the cockatrices they dealt with last term—that was the first day he knew he would be Atlas's friend forever. That was when they promised each other. No lies.

Quinn felt that light of summer in his heart now, running with Atlas, not knowing where they were going but knowing it would be better than where he came from. Quinn could go live at Atlas's house with Aries and Andromeda and Mr. Flamsteed and Mrs. Flamsteed and he would be around magic and brightness and people that cared about him and that he cared about and he could bake for them and start a garden in their backyard and he could visit his Gram whenever he wanted and... and... and.....

...then reality set in. He could hear another shriek from his mother behind him, closer than the last. He slowed his running a bit. "Atlas... where are we going?"

He would not have cut in line if the RUDE girl had not been obnoxious as even he thought that he was being petty too but her tone and …EVERYTHING about her was annoying to him. As a man before him was making his order for popcorn, Daniel turned back around so that he was facing the RUDE girl who had decided to get the popcorn and crossed his arms. ”I never said that” he said. ”If you used your brains you’d know i had been talking about the jewelry over there” he nodded in the direction of the stall that Lisa had been looking at earlier. ”But it must be difficult to use something you don’t have” he grinned and was about to turn back around when she called him annoying. ‘Takes ones to know one’ he thought before he took a step closer in her direction until he stood right in front of her. Personal space? No idea what that was. “You’re wrong. I’m not annoying” he leaned closer till his face was next to her ear like an informant telling information to an agency and whispered



“I’m Batman”

She then followed V’s glare back to Daniel who was now in front of them. V restarted the match with a killer serve and the rally began. It was entertaining absolutely but she wondered if they were going to get kicked out of line and then no one would get the popcorn. It was also escalating and she knew that it was probably time to intervene but before she knew it Daniel - uh Bat Skewer Man Boy - got very very close to V so much so that even Lisa leaned a way slightly. Wait. Did he just whisper... She looked away, covering her mouth to hide a giggle, but her shoulders gave it away and she just coughed. V wasn’t dumb - a little annoying and snobby at times but not dumb. They were both out of line and being rude.

Lisa didn’t know what to do so she reached over and tapped Daniel’s arm lightly. “Excuse me.... Mr. Wayne... I think it may be your turn to order...” she said, pointing behind Daniel a little earlier than the guy was ready but she hoped that they would move on. “Come on V, let’s go get some skewers...” They had already caused a scene... more than she had wanted too.... This was messy and Lisa didn’t do messy.

THIS BOY'S AUDACITY. Victoria was furious at his comment. Her fists balled at her sides, and she was glaring even more at him. He was insinuating she didn't have BRAINS? Really? Maybe HE didn't because his joke was so STUPID. AND WHY WAS LISA LAUGHING?! She thought Lisa would TOTALLY be taking her side on this, and she was FURIOUS she wasn't.

AND WHEN HE GOT IN HER FACE AND WHISPERED HE WAS BATMAN THAT WAS ENOUGH. VICTORIA HAD HAD ENOUGH.

Before she even knew what she was doing, she took her hands, placed them on his shoulders, and promptly *SHOVED* him. Whether he fell or not or whatever SHE DID NOT CARE. AND IF HE GOT HURT, SHE ALSO DIDN'T CARE BECAUSE HE WAS MEAN.

She glanced at Lisa, hurt clearly written on her face. "Skewers sound good. Then I can POKE anyone who is rude to me," she said in HIS direction. "And because you're acting all like you do know....and if you do, that is unfortunate because he is the absolutely WORST person I have ever met. I HOPE you don't go to Hogwarts because if I have to go to lessons with you I will SCREAM!" she had her hands back on her hips again.

Skewers, though.

Skewers, though.


She thought he was funny…. A girl had thought that he was funny! It was a good thing that Daniel did not blush easily and was therefore able to change his flustered state in to a smile. ”Thank you” he answered to her comment before turning to the RUDE girl again. ”See? She got the joke”

That the RUDE girl had not understood the joke meant to him that she was a pureblood . That or she was a muggleborn who had lived under a rock. Because even if you did not know Batman. You knew Batman.

He was still glaring at the RUDE girl when he felt a light tap on his arm. Mr.Wayne? what? oh , he got it. He momentarily switched his glare to look over at the NICE girl (in a more friendly way) when he felt two hands on his shoulders. Before he could register what was happening, he stumbled backwards before tripping over his own feet and landed with a -THUD- on the road.

”I’M the worst?!” he half shouted from the ground as he looked up at the two girls. ”I’M not the one SHOVING someone !” Was he being petty right now? Yes he was, he even had to admit it himself because he too had said some rude things back to her but in his defense SHE HAD STARTED IT!

He jumped back up on his feet and GLARED at the girl again. If only he knew how to properly use magic . He could turn that stupid hair of hers in to propellers and watch her fly away. ”Oh but i WILL be going to Hogwarts!” his grin was back again knowing that it would annoy the girl even further. ”We might even become seat mates!”

Popcorn? long forgotten.

Oh Batman-Skewer Boy was smiling now! Maybe V would finally get the joke and they could all smile, laugh, put this behind them, sing a song, and move on? Heh. Yeah... right.

A small smile began to appear on Lisa’s face as he thanked her but she froze it for fear of V’s wrath. She really, really didn’t want to get on V’s bad side and she genuinely thought that the boy had been a little rude but an equivalent level of rudeness as V. Though she did feel a little bit of loyalty to V for showing her around the Alley beforehand even with V mentioning that her side gig idea was silly... She glanced down at her feet momentarily before meeting eyes with Daniel one more time after she had tapped his shoulder and then........... something physical happened.

....V happened.

Lisa had honestly been expecting another retort or a sassy remark which personally she was a fan of.... She hadn’t expected V to get physical. She gasped LOUDLY as V PUSHED the boy to the ground and she froze once more. That was so mean!!!! Sure the boy was being a jerk but did it have to result to becoming physical??!?!

V! she cried and was about to take a step forward to intervene but before she could the boy was on his feet and V hand turned to her. Instantly Lisa could tell that she was mad and also hurt (because Lisa hadn’t stepped up for her) but agreed that skewers were a good choice. Lisa hadn’t stepped up for V because (1) V had been kinda rude to Daniel and (2) she didn’t want to make either one of them an enemy. She didn’t even know what Hogwarts was like but based on the rumors she had learned... she didn’t want to be on someone’s bad list just yet with you potentially ending up already on the bad list from the school itself!!

Why would I LIE to you about knowing him?” she asked, an annoyed edge in her voice as she gave V a glare. They knew each other longer, yes? Surely V knew she was somewhat nice.... “I’m OFFENDED that YOU would have even say that.” Lisa HUFFED and crossed her arms over her chest. “Besides - Sure. He was being rude but so were you.... V... you didn’t have to push him!! What if he got HURT?” She bit her lip to stop herself from cheekily adding something about who would defend Gotham in Batman’s failure? Where was the Catwoman they needed? Lisa stanned that Queen. But anyway back to not laughing... She didn’t want to get a death glare from V. “What if it got out of hand?” And then she turned to Daniel. “And you didn’t have to tell her she was stupid. That wasn’t nice.

They were better than escalating it, right?

Absolutely not because Daniel said that he was going to Hogwarts too and even had the nerve to smile back at V. And say that they were going to be seat mates... What if they ended up in the same house? Those two would surely kill each other? What if the three of them were all in the same house? Lisa would surely hex them....

....I’m going to get skewers.
